    How to Run an Event For Us

    If you would like to run an event for Chicago Gameday, please follow these three steps.

    1. Post your event description in this thread


    Your event description must include the following:
    • Time: morning (9:30 a.m.) or afternoon (3:30 p.m.) slot;
    • Game system: e.g., "D&D 4e";
    • Event Title: e.g., "The Caves of Chaos";
    • Description: ideally, short and to the point; here are some guidelines from designer/editor Ryan Macklin;
    • An image: one you wish associated with your event description, or else state that you are happy to leave that up to me;
    • Content Rating: choose either "Kid-Friendly" or "Adults Only";
    • Number of Players: total your event can accomodate, not including yourself;
    • Table Preference: If you need a specific table or want to reserve the private room, say so in your post below. However, please be aware that table assignments may be adjusted depending on the size of your event. View a map of the Games Plus play area

    2. Make sure I have a way of contacting you


    Either like us on Facebook or provide me with your email address so I can add you to our mailing list. You can email me at buzz (at) buzzmo (dot) com. If you have Private Messaging enabled here at ENWorld, that works, too.

    3. Subscribe to this thread on ENWorld or else make sure to check it regularly.



    How to Be a Great Gameday GM

    You should create a safe, friendly space for your event.
    Introduce yourself and help introduce the players to each other. Be accommodating to people with special needs, e.g., someone who needs to sit closer to you in order to hear better. Be sensitive to players who let you know they are uncomfortable with certain topics your game may address; do what you can to make them comfortable. In short, treat your players as you would guests in your home.

    You should be aware of how long your event lasts.
    Four hours is the ideal minimum. Morning events should end with enough time left to allow you and your players to get lunch and spend some time shopping before the start of afternoon event slot. Afternoon events should keep both the Metra schedules and the store's hours in mind.

    You should come to Gameday prepared to run your event
    ...no matter how many people have signed up for it. If you don't want to run your event, let me know as soon as possible, and I will remove it from the schedule.

    I will be running The One Ring, but I'm going to hold off on assigning it a slot until the schedule develops a bit.

    I'll take a morning slot for $1000, Buzz.

    I plan on running a Dungeon Crawl Classic RPG 0 level character funnel adventure based in a post apocalyptic world. I'll be able to seat 6 so table G, please.

    I'll post the full description soon.

    Time: Morning
    Game System: Savage Worlds
    Event Title: Steamscapes: Into the Wilds

    Description:
    Travel in the western wilds of Texas is always risky, and now that you have a very expensive piece of cargo to protect, you'll need to worry about a lot more than just saving your own hide. There are bandits and air pirates out there! This adventure will cover as many chapters of the Steamscapes: North America plot point campaign as possible. If any players have played previous chapters, we will continue from there (with recaps for the new folks).

    Rating: Kid-friendly
    Number of players: 6

    Yeah, I think many regulars will not be making it this time around, which will be weird.

    Have fun in Across-Pond-Land, Ncat!
